Those of you who are teaching German might find Sean Sullivan’s Zeit für Deutsch website very useful. It features lessons plans together with resources & activities for teaching an initial year of the language to year 3 primary students.

The lessons follow the topics featured in the excellent German language teaching resources produced by Goethe Institut which can be downloaded from this link and is another site that is well worth visiting.

The Human Eye September 4, 2015

This great interactive resource from UK opticians Vision Direct focusses (no pun intended) on the human eye. There are two main sections. In the first you can click on the various parts of the eye to learn what they are called and what they do. In the second you can explore how the eye allows people to see. You can see how the iris alters the size of the pupil depending on the brightness and also watch how the lens changes shape to adjust the focus length.

It’s great to see that the resource is also available in Welsh…
